ISLAM: Stoning women to death
I am not a member of Amnesty International and I question some of its activities. I have received this message: "Here's a quick way to register your protest on behalf of the Nigerian woman, Amina Lawal, who's been sentenced to death by stoning. It's due to take place after she has weaned her baby daughter.
Please go to http://www.mertonai.org/amina/ click on "sign our letter" to support Amnesty's campaign. Please also show your support by forwarding this link".
I am happy to do so, and I have signed the letter. Mainstream Islam, which springs from Mohammed, who gained power by force, has a cruel element in it. I do not see how Muslins can say they respect Jesus when they show no compassion in these cases, to which Jesus specifically referred. Amina is a poor aging woman who needs help.
